L'officiel Singapore - - Style -

When Al­berto San­tos-du­mont – Brazil­ian pi­lot and friend of founder Louis Cartier – found his pocket time­piece cum­ber­some and im­prac­ti­cal to use dur­ing his flights, his watch­maker pal in­vented a flat wrist­watch with a dis­tinct square case and rounded cor­ners just for him to tell the time. Aptly named the San­tos, the ticker is, to­day, one of Cartier’s most com­mer­cially suc­cess­ful de­signs and one of the most in­stantly recog­nis­able in horol­ogy. Pink gold with al­li­ga­tor strap.

Some­day calf­skin satchel, BER­LUTI.
